High Water Coming On The North Platte

Karen Snyder, K2 Radio

CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Game and Fish Department says fishermen should be on the lookout for high water on the North Platte River in early April.

Game and Fish has requested higher releases to maintain fish spawning habitat and increase populations of the invertebrates that fish eat.

The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation plans to begin releasing higher flows from Gray Reef Reservoir upstream from Casper starting April 2.

Each day, releases will increase from 500 cubic feet per second to 4,000 cubic feet per second before being reduced back to 500 cubic feet. The schedule will repeat on April 3, 4, 5 and 6, with flows peaking in the early morning hours.

Game and Fish says sportsmen should be aware of the water fluctuations if they’re floating on or wading in river.
